Why is the doctor angry?
Comic strip manga (TOKYOSHOSEKI)
IKEGAYA Isao [Japan]
Reason for Award
The author himself has said appropriately in his book. This book is a careful examination of modest humor and examples of modest humor. There are some very nonsensical humor that will make your world turn upside-down, while others almost makes us fall on our knees and say “You got me!”. The detailed descriptions are carefully drawn on each illustration, and the annotated descriptions that accompany the illustrations are filled with loving feelings; this combination creates a very nice atmosphere, such as that of tea and rice crackers. Just imagining the author looking at the old lady’s “face paint” and the cup’s “dance” makes us very happy.
